Wheeler named VP for Student Affairs at Normandale

Feb. 11, 2010Interim Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance Lisa Wheeler has been named vice president for student affairs at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minn. Wheeler’s relationship with UWRF dates back to 1989 when she arrived on campus as assistant dean of students and later director of the Academic Success Center before leaving in 2001. She then returned to UWRF in 2006 as the interim chief information officer and has served as vice chancellor since October 2008.

“My time at UW-River Falls has been wonderful. It has been a great experience watching the University grow and develop” Wheeler said. “I look forward to watching the University continue to do so from across the river.” Wheeler went on to pledge that despite working in Minnesota, she will not become a Vikings fan.

"Dr. Wheeler has served UW-River Falls with distinction in several roles over many years, and has contributed a great deal to our University's progress," said Chancellor Dean Van Galen. "I know that our campus is grateful for Lisa's contributions, and wishes her the very best at Normandale."

Wheeler’s last day at UWRF will be March 12. The search for a permanent vice chancellor for administration and finance is underway.
